Wear a funky TradeMutt shirt to work on a Friday, and make a commitment to show a bit of vulnerability.
Start conversations about mental health with your co-workers, and how you approach your own wellbeing / some of the challenges you’ve faced yourself.
Encourage others to open up about their own experiences and be a good listener! Don’t expect to have all the answers, just be present and sympathetic.
If anyone needs to chat about something heavy, private or maybe out of your wheelhouse, LIFT THE POCKET and suggest they scan the QR code, for free, same-day counselling with the team at TIACS.
Bonus Step 5:
Have a laugh, have fun, and make sure you don’t treat anyone differently after they’ve opened up - Mental health is maintenance, it’s a part of everyday life, so let’s treat it that way!
You’re now helping to build a better mental health culture at work, and helping those around you to open up. Well done and remember to take care of yourself too!
Happy Funky Shirt Friday!
